  1. Takeout Double
  2. some might make a Support Double
  3. see discussion

This not particularly the deal I would want to start but here we are Board 1 which is sort of a rabbit hole* with all the bids that might be made really be hard to predict. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

* A rabbit hole, in a metaphorical sense, is a long and winding exploratory path with many connections and offshoots.

Bidding: South opens the bidding 1 with 12 high card points and 6 losers this is not a preemptive hand. West makes a Takeout Double. North has some options but with 9 hcp and 8 losers owes South a bid and responding 1 seems right, and West bid of 1 seems right. South has some options with 3-hearts South could make a Support Double , it is typically right to find a major suit fit. Or in the auction here South rebids 2. double dummy it probably does not make a difference, as West with 11 hcp and 6 losers will bid 2. In the auction here North bids 3, but if North passes, South will bid 3 and this is where the auction should end, both East and West having fully bid there values (if not more).

Made 3 — NS +110

Play: The first four tricks seem logical of K, diamond to A and A pitching a diamond and club return finessing for the K. After that who knows some might cash the A hoping for a split in clubs and go down 1 in 3, but here South exits a heart and makes 3.

  1. preemptive

This may not seem like an important deal, but having a partnership agreement on preempts is a very BIG deal. If you don't have a rule of some sort you will be zigging and zagging through agreements. I personally don't like bid 3M with 7-cards and bid 4M with 8-cards. This agreement is antiquated and does not take into account risk analysis like the Rule of 234 would. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: So this partnership has the agreement that opening 3M the preemptive bidder does not have 2 defensive tricks. So North knows South does not hold AK or say A and KQ so it is pretty easy for North to just bid 4.

1Pass21Pass

4Pass6All pass
  1. safe line of bidding
  2. responder jump raise
  3. shows better values than just bidding 3NT

East with 17 high card points and 4-4-4-1 shape does not have an easy hand to bid. East cannot open 1NT with a singleton spade and opening 1 with a plan to Reverse into hearts will show the wrong shape and jump shifting into clubs would show better values. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: East opens 1 with the hope to be able to show values later. West responds 1 (this keeps North out of the auction) and East decides to play it safe and rebid 2 (understating values). West makes a responder jump raise to 3(maybe an understatement, some might bid 2 as Fourth Suit Forcing ) and East can now show values and shape bidding 3 which is forcing to at least 4. East knows with West jump raise to 3 West probably has near opening values maybe 11 hcp and East has 20 support points in diamonds so goes to 6. East could have responded Minorwood to 4 or bid 4NT as Blackwood, but all he really needs is West 11 hcp and 1 keycard.

Play: The play to 6 is tricky and might be considered double dummy play but declarer (East) has no alternative than to double finesse for diamonds and find the A. Bridge Winners can see the trick by trick play on: http://thecommongame.com

  1. game/slam try

The bidding on this deal might go a number of ways depending on partnership agreements. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: Some holding South's hand might open something, but without a 5-card major opening light in 3rd seat is just inviting catastrophe. After 3 passes West opens 1 in 4th seat. In response to 1 some might bid 4 as a weak 5/5 fit in the majors, but this bid typically shows a weaker hand with 4-6 high card points points and is a defensive bid. In addition East did not show limit raise values with a Drury bid of 2 or 2. In the auction here East responds 2.

West could just bid 4 but bids 2 as a game/slam try and when East just bids 4 and not 3 or 3 West passes 4.

Play: The play of this deal is not tricky. My play here only makes 4 because to make 5 requires peeking into opponents hand to see double finesse on hearts. Bridge Winners can see the trick by trick play on: http://thecommongame.com

It is not often I equivocate on an auction, but idk (I DONT know) about this auction. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding:
After 3 passes, South opens 1 and North (as a passed hand) makes a 1NT Semi-Forcing bid. South rebids 2 and North in the auction here bids 3 (I'm not certain if this is strong enough). And South rebids 4 (I'm not really certain of this bid either).

I'm going to think this through and see if I can add to this analysis.
